Mukurtu at International Conference on Indigenous Archives, Libraries, and Museums

ATALM is a national non-profit organization that maintains a network of support for indigenous programs, provides culturally relevant programming and services, encourages collaboration among tribal and non-tribal cultural institutions, and articulates contemporary issues related to developing and sustaining the cultural sovereignty of Native Nations.

With these goals the association organizes conferences, workshops, and institutes.

Again this year, Mukurtu will participate in the conference with a full day workshop, “Mukurtu CMS: Implementation and Use” on June 14, 2013.


Mukurtu is a free and open source content management solution for Indigenous communities, museums, archives and libraries to share, license and curate their digital heritage built in collaboration with the Center for Digital Archaeology. Leveraging the power of Drupal 7, Mukurtu CMS creates a custom management solution specifically designed for the cultural, ethical and legal needs of Indigenous peoples globally.

During the workshop, participants will learn what Mukurtu is, how it works and decide firsthand if it’s the right tool for you. Topics include:

  • features overview
  • installation overview
  • add and manage cultural protocols
  • add and organize content
  • manage content and media
  • define and manage groups
  • manage users access and roles

To get the most out of the workshop, please pre-register. If you decide that Mukurtu meets your needs we will work with you to help you decide the best hosting solution for your community.

The workshop will be lead by:

  • Kimberly Christen, Mukurtu Project Director and Associate Professor, Washington State University;
  • Michael Ashley, Mukurtu Director of Development, Center for Digital Archaeology;
  • Connor Rowe, Service Manager, Mukurtu.
